CONCACAF W Championship 2022 standings, schedule, scores for women’s soccer World Cup, Olympic qualifying

Sports

The CONCACAF W Championship will crown the best national women’s soccer team on the North American content, but it carries even more weight than that: Direct berths will be handed out to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the 2024 Olympics.

The USA, ranked No. 1 in the world, headline the competition alongside No. 6-ranked Canada, and each were placed in separate groups. Mexico is the next highest-ranked nation in the region at No. 26 in the FIFA World Rankings, while Costa Rica is fourth at No. 37.

After using the early stages of 2022 to test younger talent as the team reloads, USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski has recalled a number of proven veterans to help guide the squad through the critical summer tournament. Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe were called up to lead the team, while young stars Trinity Rodman and Sophia Smith also appear.

The Americans have never missed out on a FIFA World Cup or Olympics tournament, but it won’t be a cakewalk at the W Championship with Olympic gold medalists Canada, or upstart hosts Mexico likely to reach the final. But Haiti, Jamaica, and Costa Rica have also made important strides as they seek to make history.

CONCACAF W Championship: What’s at stake

The CONCACAF W Championship features eight teams split into two groups (Groups A & B). After round-robin play concludes in each group, the top two teams advance to the knockout semifinals with A1 facing B2 and B1 taking on A2 in single-elimination matches.

The final will be played on July 18 with the third-place match unfolding a mere hours before. Third-place will matter to the winner. Here’s what’s at stake in the tournament:

  • 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup berths: The top two teams in each group clinch an automatic berth to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. The third-place finishers in each group advance to a 10-team intercontinental playoff handing out the final three World Cup berths.
  • 2024 Summer Olympic berths: The winner of the tournament earns a direct berth to the 2024 Paris Olympics. The second- and third-place finishers will do battle for the second automatic spot in a play-in match in September 2023. 
  • 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup berths: The top three finishers all qualify directly for the 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup. The rest of the Gold Cup field will be determined by a qualifying competition held in the latter half of 2023.
